In point of fact I am extremelly unhappy about the current war we are in. In return for me throwing in a harmless joke at the beginning your next post was more or less an attack on me personally and Americans in general. In response to this I am going to do nothing other than refute your statement once again politelly.
Nygdan and others have continued down the path as to why we shouldn't invade pakistan so I will not even bother to address that. Instead I am going to illustrate a few points so you fully understand the supposed benefits we as the American people are NOT reaping from our war for oil.
Gas prices have steadilly risen since 9/11 and are showing no sign of slowing down.
Our friends and neighbors and families are coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan physically and emotionally scarred for life.
By lumping all americans into the NeoCon camp you are dangerously stereotyping us and creating an enemy you cannot afford to have. Namelly the American people, At some point this Neo Con insanity will end and when it does I really don't think you want to have attracted the Ire of the American People. Because while a government might deal with someone in the name of expedience if you alienate the countrie's people that will no longer be a politically survivable option.
Please don't believe what you see on CNN, Most americans do not share the views they would have you believe, and by believing that most of us are in lock step with current government policy you are in fact buying directly into the propaganda.
